Our Doctrine

We believe man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.

We believe the entire Holy Bible is the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write the words of Scripture. Therefore, the Holy Bible is without error.

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). All three persons are the same in nature.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh, born of a virgin to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, for the Glory of God enjoying the fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally depraved and incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin. The proper response to the gospel is faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ, a faith that is naturally accompanied by repentance from sin.

We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every believer will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.

We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head.
